Filed in : Interiors

We all know what they say about first impressions, right? Well, I do!

Urban Jungle Bloggers: The Plant Shelfie

Filed in : Interiors, Lifestyle

I love taking shelfies! Which is just great as I never take selfies…it’s just not my thing. Lucky for me, the avid shelfie snapper, November’s Urban Jungle Bloggers focus is the ‘Plant Shelfie’. This couldn’t be more perfectly timed because my houseplant count has increased significantly over the past month as a result of two gifts […]

Coping With Loss During The Holiday Season

Filed in : Lifestyle

It’s crazy how you never quite know what’s coming at you from one minute to the next. Two weeks ago I got all excited about putting up the Christmas tree. Given my penchant for all things bright and beautiful, and the huge progress I’ve made in my healing over the years, I relished the level […]

Hey, I’m Back At My Desk!

Apologies for dashing off without prior notice but I’m sure you all know that life has a tendency to get in the way sometimes.
